Restore dentures to original pink color

I'm not sure this is the right forum for this question but I thought I would give it a try.

The pink portion of my dentures have become slightly yellowed over time. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can restore the original pink color without damaging the dentures? I've tried several over the counter denture cleaners but none have really restored the original pink color.

Have you called your dentist (or a dentist)? They have products that would work better than over the counter stuff. They could also probably buff them, the same as when they polish teeth. That would restore the pink and I wouldn't think it should cost much.

I agree that a dentist could surely take care of this for you. My dad used to run a dental lab and made dentures, and if I recall, the polymer used to make the dentures simply needs to be repolished to restore the color... kind of like buffing and waxing your car.
